(A) Falguiere's Diana starts the show, haughty and self-satified wench that she appears to be. She's just under 10 inches tall, and what a deep rich patina, way bettah than any tanning salon could provide. I'm in love with that flippant shoulder, myself. She rests on a small plinth of black plastic about a half inch high. (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

 

(C) Another bust, this one porcelain and 17 inches high, is this lovely Asian or Eurasian, or Afro-Asian Art Deco woman, perched upon a faux-painted wood plinthe. The glaze has a subtle crackle finish, barely discernible in this photo. The muted colors, the hair style, the crook of the neck -- it's "ooo-la-la" time again in the hen-house, n'est-ce pas? Would you believe this was made in Denmark (it's marked on the base of the porcelain)? I now think of Denmark as "in the Deco game" par excellence!! (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

 

(E) Another figure more "sculpture" than figurine, all done up in her verdigris patina, here caught dallying and sunning dans le nue, dans le jardin. She's 22 inches tall and signed MARTAUS. (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

(F) Our Rubenesque dame is a Dane, no less, by TINOS (signed on the back). This gorgeous sculpture measures over 11 inches in diameter and weighs over seven pounds!! A must for your international naked lady collection! (e-mail Jack for a price)

 

(G) And this spelter beauty is by Garcia. Garcia?! Who knows, maybe he sculpted when on vacation in France! She stands 9 tall and is in restored but good condition.

Ah, but Her Majesty has flown to her rightful owner! SOLD!!
